a good hoppy American lager, I don't get much german from this at all, maybe a little dusty yellow grain base, but this beer is one heck of a hoppy lager, more so than any from Europe I have seen. nice snow white head, good clarity, and a powerful hoppy aroma of some bigger American hops, maybe simcoe or something similar, centennial or the like. I wouldn't quite call it an india pale lager, but its getting there stylistically with all the hops, for me at least it is. big hop flavors pick up about mid palate where the hefty pilsener malt base leaves off. its never too biter, but has a resinous dank hoppy dominance to it. a little filling, fuller bodied for the style, and I didn't find it to be as crisp per se as advertised, but I like this beer quite a bit. an easier drinking summer hoppy brew than and ipa, but this will likely not please those in search of an authentic german pils.

Pours a cloudy and light gold color with lots of head that dies quick with lace patches around glass. Beer is light, smooth, the minor citric hoppy crispness is dominant but there is a little big of sweetness coming off as well thanks to a good balance. Finishes dry and crisp and is a simple and enjoyable beer.
